Project Server 2010: New TechNet and MSDN Resources – and 2010 Forums!

I don’t usually steal all of Christophe’s blog postings but this one is worth it.  Mostly planning content at the moment – but expect a ton more as we go through November and the Beta release.  Certainly worth bookmarking for future reference.  And if I get time I will be hanging out on the forums,…


Project Server 2007: October 2009 Cumulative Updates (CU) are Available

Bing Search now working on my Microsoft Project Support blog site!

The TechNet and MSDN blogs had an overhaul recently and the search box that has long frustrated me when looking on even my blog has finally been fixed.  It now uses the Bing engine and really does find stuff on my blog. (which Bing and other major search engines had been finding anyway. One thing…


Project Server 2007: Running SSRS add-in for SharePoint without breaking your cube build

This is an issue that has been around for a while – the different versions of the SQL components between the SSRS add-in for SharePoint and the Analysis Services requirements for cube building caused a catch-22.  Thanks to Bart for finding a resolution to this – install the Management Objects Collection component of the SQL…
